SDGs & Socially Responsible Finance (SRF) – Case Studies from Selected AFI Members

As stewards of the financial system, central banks can play a critical role in a nation’s plans to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

This case study examines the role of financial institutions in achieving the UN SDGs through socially responsible finance (SRF), a broad range of political and commercial adjustments aimed at ensuring financial systems protect society and the environment.

While this document focuses largely on examples from Bangladesh, it also touches on experiences from Afghanistan, Bhutan, Costa Rica, Fiji, Georgia, Liberia and São Tomé and Príncipe that provide additional lessons from central banks facing comparable economic situations.
